We stopped for an overnight break at the Dieppe Bay anchorage with our sailboat (an excellent overnight anchorage, by the way). We had not yet cleared into St. Kitts but a customs officer, seeing our Q flag, waved at us from the beach and cleared us into St. Kitts on the spot. We asked him if there was a local guide who could take us up to the volcano. He found a great one who charged a lot less (about 60% less, actually) than what guides typically charge out of Basseterre.
The hike was superb if a little strenuous and the view at the top is fantastic. We are avid hikers and climbers and it took us 75 minutes to climb from the trailhead to the crater rim. We found the trail to be very clearly marked to a point that, had we known that beforehand, we would have dispensed with the guide altogether.
